{Review} Stila In The Light Palette

I bought this Stila In the Light Palette on a whim a couple of months ago at Sephora because I'm just the type of girl that cannot get enough of her neutrals. I don't know what it is, but I'm always thinking, "but this is a different neutral palette." It wasn't much of a justification then, but it sure made sense at the time.

The new In The Light Eye Shadow Palette is a beautiful collection of Stila's award-winning Eye Shadows in wearable, neutral shades for every skintone that can be worn wet or dry. The palette also includes an exclusive Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Damsel, a matte chocolate brown, and an eight-page lookbook with detailed how-to tips and tricks. 

What it looks like inside.

Bare- matte ivory
Kitten - shimmering champagne
Bliss - matte light brown
Sunset- shimmery copper
Sandstone - matte neutral brown

Champagne - pale gold shimmer
Gilded Gold - bronze with gold shimmer
Luster - deep gray with gold shimmer
Night Sky- slate blue with silver shimmer
Ebony - matte black

 Eyeliner swatch: Damsel - a matte chocolate brown

PROS:
- the palette is very lightweight

CONS:
- the packaging feels cheap
- it's cardboard and doesn't shut properly, so I'd be afraid to bring it with me to travel unless I secure it with some rubber-bands
- some shadows are chalky
- majority of the shadows are crumbly
- *lots and lots of fallout

*I noticed that there's much less fallout when I use the foil method, but it's not one of my favorite ways to apply eyeshadow.

For $39, I could have gotten a lot of better eyeshadow palettes at the drugstore. The quality of these Stila shadows are mediocre and I'm really disappointed. Save your money or invest in a better eyeshadow palette like Urban Decay Naked (either original or 2) or the Kat Von D Saint palette!

Will I repurchase? No.
